Urban Street Concept Bike Cube’s Carbon Fiber Collapsible Bicycle Concept So, let me tell you a little bit about myself, now that I have joined the Carbon Fiber Gear family, I am the absolute complete opposite of Dave. While he is the technology and gadget lover, I like things to be a bit simpler. My philosophy is ‘if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it’ and I always stick to the originals. CB550 Custom Build by S&G builder Brady Young - Seaweed & Gravel Custom build by Seaweed and Gravel in southern california built by Brady Young (previously of UGLY Motorbikes.)

Pacific The clean and striking IF MODE is aimed at commuters of the mobile generation who, until now, may have not considered cycling or folding bikes to be an option. IF MODE is a unique product that offers a new image for people who previously thought bikes were for enthusiasts only. IF MODE avoids oily chains, complex tube with hidden dirt traps and the clutter of traditional bicycle features. It can be used by city commuters who do not want to change their appearance into ‘bicycle warriors’ and may use public transport or their car for some of the journey. IF MODE looks at home folded up on a smart subway train or in an office, just like a sleek mp3 player or other well designed accessory in your life. It also performs on the street like any lightweight well balanced full size bike.

Carbon fiber bikes For the adventurous types, bicycles that do not stand the test of time are nothing but an annual expenditure. Even strong steel frames do not do the job for them as they choose terrains, where even an SUV gives up. Being a composite material, carbon fiber makes for the strongest bicycles frame in the market. Though, the carbon fiber bicycles are very expensive, it’s worth it in the long run, for carbon bicycle frames can withstand immense force from pedaling and are virtually indestructible. Have a look at some of the robust bikes made in carbon fiber.

A New App Tracks Where Cyclists Actually Ride, To Help Plan Better Paths London plans to spend more than a billion dollars on better bike infrastructure over the next decade, and across the rest of the U.K., the government will spend hundreds of millions more. The only problem: There's very little data about where cyclists ride, making it difficult to plan exactly where new bike lanes are most needed. A new iPhone app aims to help by tracking routes as people ride and and turning that data into maps. When volunteer cyclists install the app, called WeCycle, it automatically begins mapping.
